In solidarity with the people of Lebanon after the horrific explosion that occurred in Beirut on Aug. 4, the Champlain Bridge in Montreal was lit last night, Thursday, Aug. 6, with the colours of the Lebanese flag. Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs François-Philippe Champagne has announced that the bridge will again be lit up tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday). It’s a kind and compassionate gesture in a city with such a large Lebanese population.
